Jane Avril Quotes in Moulin Rouge (1952)
Jane Avril Quotes:
Jane Avril: What is wrong with me, Henri? Other women find love and happiness. I find only disenchantment.
Henri: But you find it so often.
Jane Avril: Have you ever had contact with a legal mind, Henri? It's beyond belief. I wasn't the vision of his dreams, I was the party of the first part. He didn't declare his love for me, he merely acknowledged that as a state of affection exists... Oh Henri, why couldn't you be tall and handsome?
Henri: Two more of these and I shall be.
Jane Avril: You are the only man who has never bored me.
Henri: I am the only man who has never loved you.
Jane Avril: Henri, over there. There is the most beautiful creature. Look at those shoulders.
Henri: For your sake, I pray that they are not padded.
Henri: Well, Jane, what a long road you have traveled. Only a few years ago you were singing for your supper, and here you are a full-fledged star at twenty-nine.
Jane Avril: Twenty-five!
Henri: Of course, I beg your pardon. Twenty-five.
Jane Avril: I have been twenty-five for four years, and I shall stay there for another four. Then I'll be twenty-seven for a while. I intend to grow old *gracefully*!
Jane Avril: Myriamme, you are incorrigible! The first time you're out with a man and you tell him your father died of *alcoholism*! Anyway, whose father *didn't*?
Jane Avril: Tomorrow, I'll think of a very good answer, but in the meantime, I prefer to change the subject.
Jane Avril: Henri, we heard you were dying. We simply had to come say good-bye.
Jane Avril: I ask you, what is the world coming to when a girl won't even accept a horse?
